Further information to help with your car hire from Palermo Airport (Falcone–Borsellino Airport)

One key point to remember that if this is your first time visiting Italy, you must drive on the right hand side of the road. Also to make the best of your trip, we would strongly recommend that you consider hiring a GPS (SatNav) to ensure that you get to your chosen destination without delay or confusion.
Enjoy your car hire in Palermo
If this is your first time hiring a car in Palermo, our best advice is to ‘relax and take your time.’ As mentioned, drive on the right and for peace of mind make sure you can easily find your way with GPS (ask at the rental counter for details).
If travelling by motorway (Autostrada), the maximum speed is 130 km/h. While some of the roads in Italy are free of charge, there are also a number of toll roads which attract a charge. Most toll roads accept both cash and credit card payment. The speed limit on B roads varies from 50 km/h to 90 km/h. For your own safety it is important that you obey local speed and traffic restrictions.
In an emergency, Italian Emergency Services can be contacted by calling 112 or alternatively you can contact the police on 113, the fire brigade on 115 and paramedics on 118.

Yes, this is possible. If you booked through our website please contact our reservations team on [email protected] however there is no guarantee that we will be able to amend your booking but we will try our best to help.
Yes, in all cases the main driver will be required to leave a deposit which will be taken by the method of pre-authorisation from the credit card presented. The level of pre-authorisation taken is dependent on the type of insurance purchased and the agreed excess. Typically the level of pre-authorisation required will mirror the level of agreed excess. In the cases where the hirer has selected a zero excess option, a small deposit / pre-authorisation will be required to cover any traffic violations including parking and speeding offences that may occur while the hire vehicle is in the custody of the hirer.
We would ask you to note that all pre-authorisation’s are released on the completion of the hire following a satisfactory review of the vehicle and its condition noting that any damaged caused to the vehicle while out on hire will be subject to cost with the relevant amount being removed from the pre-authorisation.
Typical deposits / pre-authorisations can range from from 1200 EUR to 2500 EUR dependent on the car type, age and driving experience of the driver and agreed excess.
Green Motion Palermo Airport offers their rental customers the opportunity to reduce their excess by purchasing one of our excess reduction packages. Each package provides different benefits ranging from reduction in excess to zero excess. Please ask at the rental counter for more information.
In most cases, each Green Motion location will accept most major credit cards including Visa and MasterCard and in some cases, American Express may be accepted.
In relation to debit cards (Visa), these are typically accepted for the payment of rentals but unfortunately we cannot secure a deposit / pre-authorisation using a debit card and as such require a valid credit card for the pre-authorisation of the deposit. In addition we are unable to accept cash either for the payment of the rental or for the security deposit.
We would ask you to note that in the event that we are unable to guarantee funds relating to the security deposit on your credit card we will be unable to rent a vehicle to you.
Green Motion Palermo Airport does not hold the pre-authorisation / deposit in our bank accounts. The pre-authorisation is a block of the agreed amount held against the credit card presented by the issuing bank. As soon as the vehicle has returned and we are happy with the condition of the vehicle, we action a release of the pre-authorisation.
The time taken by the issuing bank to release the pre-authorisation on the credit card varies immensely dependent on the bank and the country of issue. Typically, most pre-authorisations / deposits are released within 5 – 14 days from the return of the rental car.
In the event that you feel a pre-authorisation has not been released with the prescribed time frame it will be necessary for you to make direct contact with the issuing bank as Green Motion Palermo Airport has no jurisdiction in this matter
In most cases, Green Motion Palermo Airport offers full roadside assistance and recovery within the cost of renting a vehicle. Further information on roadside assistance is available at the counter prior to renting.
In the event that your flight is delayed, please endeavour to contact Green Motion Palermo Airport. In most cases, we monitor inbound flight information and as such we will reserve your car until you arrive for up to 2 hours from the original pick up time. It is important that you make direct contact with the branch if you feel that your delay will exceed 2 hours to avoid us treating the rental as a “no show” and us reselling the rental car.
Green Motion Palermo Airport's opening hours are from 08:00 to 22:00.

You are not authorised to return your rental vehicle outside office hours unless prior agreement has been made noting that in the event that agreement has been authorised, it is subject to strict terms and conditions. Typically, return of the rental vehicle outside of rental hours is not authorised
